2017 Profit Survey
Share |
How does your company’s performance compare to others in the fastener industry?

Find out by participating in the free NFDA 2017 Profit Survey
What’s In It For You?
As a participant in the survey, you will receive:
  • The Profit Report
A financial and operating profile of all participating members.
  • Profit Improvement Profile
A confidential report sent directly to you, comparing your firm with similar participating firms.

Many firms take this report to the bank to discuss loans and lines of credit.
  • Profit Dashboard
An interactive tool to assist your financial planning and compare your firm with others.

Instructions on how to access the Toolkit included with your Profit Improvement Profile.


 What Does It Cost?

  • Participation is FREE.  It is a great bargain.   
  • You do not need to be a member of NFDA to participate.
What's The Value?

There is no other source for this information. If this personalized report was available from a CPA firm it would require an investment of $1,500 or more.

Will My Figures Be Confidential?


Profit Planning Group independently conducts this survey for NFDA.  You send your questionnaire directly to Profit Planning Group and they return your Profit Improvement Profile directly to you.  Profit Planning Group has conducted more than 100 financial surveys annually for overtwenty years with no breach of confidentiality.

Reports present only aggregated results.  Strict masking procedures are used so no individual firm data can be identified.

"I personally guarantee that no individual firm's operational or financial data will ever be revealed to any person outside the immediate and necessary staff of Profit Planning Group." --Dr. Albert D. Bates, President, Profit Planning Group

It's Easy To Participate

Most firms can complete the questionnaire in thirty minutes or less.

The deadline to submit your completed survey is June 30, 2017.

If you need a copy of the survey you can request one by email to or fax a request to 303-444-9245.


The final report will be issued to participants, at no charge, in August.  Companies that do not participate can purchase the Profit Report (but will not have access to the Profit Improvement Profile or Profit Toolkit Online).
